Consultation Period 12 April to 27 May 2017

We are pleased to announce start of Regulation 14 consultation on the joint West Monkton & Cheddon Fitzpaine Neighbourhood Development Plan (WM&CFP NDP).
The WM&CFP NDP covers the parishes of West Monkton and Cheddon Fitzpaine.

We will see significant growth in the coming years. Through policies in the NDP we aim to ensure that development:
• is successfully accommodated;
• is sustainable, with excellent community facilities and high quality design;
• respects the historic environment and surrounding countryside is protected and enhanced.

Once made the WM&CFP NDP will be used by TDBC when assessing planning applications in the NDP area.

12 April 2016


Both Parish Councils have worked together with volunteers over 18 months to produce a Joint Neighbourhood Plan to produce 15 Policies.

A six-week consultation period commences April 2017. All Parishioners are asked to give their comments or observations on the NP draft document.

Why did we do it?

Having a Neighbourhood Plan allows the community to grow whilst protecting existing community assets.

The NP identifies and makes provision for the realisation of community aspirations for the future.

The NP becomes part of the planning framework influencing the form and content of any new development.
